Provide Bibles to Christians in areas where accessing God’s Word is difficult or illegal.
Open Doors’ core ministry is, and always has been, providing the Word of God to believers – especially in countries where this task is difficult and even illegal. The Bible has the power to change lives and reveal God’s truth through the Holy Spirit. Open Doors works all around the world distributing Bibles and Christian literature to persecuted Christians and churches. Reading the Bible personally will strengthen believers in their faith. Bibles are also given as gifts to friends and those seeking answers about Christianity.
$10 provides one Bible.
$50 provides five Bibles.
$100 provides ten Bibles.
Provide specialised training to empower persecuted Christians to promote and defend the gospel.
In Vietnam, a group of ladies gather to celebrate in hope and faith found in their new Christian identity - their joy is undeniable and contagious! They find their new learning aids are beneficial to their faith and enable them to be witnesses to God’s love in their community. Open Doors works with groups like this in many areas around the world, equipping Christians with Bible manuals and teaching essential skills including counselling and Christian leadership.
$17 helps to provide Christian resources and transport to a training session for a persecuted believer.
Prepare Christians in India to stand strong in their faith in the face of persecution.
In India, attacks against Christians have left many scars. As a result, the Bible-based ‘Standing Strong through the Storm’ (SSTS) program is in great demand. The program teaches Christians how to biblically respond to persecution, to rebuild their lives, and to share the gospel with those around them. The training is especially targeted at Sunday school workers to help strengthen the most vulnerable young believers.
$82 helps to provide coaching and Bible tools to a participant of SSTS training.
Sponsor an evangelist or pastor in China to spread the gospel with zeal.
The church in China has grown to record levels over the last 50 years, despite or perhaps because of extreme persecution. China’s great revival has resulted in millions of Chinese finding freedom in Christ and they are on fire to spread the gospel of love and freedom! There is a new generation of young people eager to learn about the truth of Jesus. Open Doors is continuing ministry in China through equipping and preparing pastors and evangelists to channel their passion to witness to the Chinese people.
$29 helps to provide sponsorship for an evangelist for gospel and ministry training.
Teach persecuted Christians how to read and write with their very own Bible.
Many Christians who are persecuted are denied their rights not only because of their faith, but also because they cannot speak up for themselves due to illiteracy. Additionally, without knowing how to read, Christians are unable to read the Bible for themselves and to know God more fully through His Word. Open Doors provides essential literacy programs for persecuted Christians and they also receive their own copy of the Bible to enable them to continue growing in their love and knowledge of God.
$95 provides a believer with literacy skills and their very own Bible.
